Birthday - Avatar Style

Today is Happy Honey's Birthday! For those of you that dont know, he's very big into cartoons. And one of the bestest 'toons ever is Avatar. And no, I'm not talking that over-hyped movie with the giant blue men and the social conscience. The real Avatar, before Mr. Cameron ripped off the name, was a trilogy cartoon officially dubbed Avatar: the Last Airbender. We watched the entire series (three books, dozens of chapters) for three straight weekends. It was a very unproductive month. But sooo awesome. And for those of you wondering, the original cartoon series waaaayyy better than the live-action movie.

But enough of my soap-boxing.

Since this week's Club Anya Mania Monday theme was "morphing" I decided to make a Team Avatar birthday card using various stamps from the Greeting Farm. I used Amy's lightbox altering technique to trace over the stamped images, adding and taking away bits to make them more Avatar-style. I suppose technically this is more altering than morphing but I did use various stamps to most of the images. I used a combination of Hula Anya with Flutter Anya's eyes, but left them unfilled so I could color them blue like the "real" Katara's eyes.

I left the card relatively simple because the focus was really on Team Avatar. I think this is the most altering I've ever done. Craziness, but the boy totally digs it.
The Dets:
Stamps: TGF Edward, Skater Ian, Hula Anya, Flutter Anya, Ebony
Paper: DCWV latte mat stack
Ink: Memento, Copics
Accessories: Spellbinders labels nine, kaiser pearls, black eyelets
